Hartly... Finally decided to open this thread.  Hope you ignore those who don't like you explaining the problems you have had with Clam.
It is helpful for me to read reviews of products and customer service.

Bass Thumb. I don't know what planet your from ,but when your spending $700 Canadian for a tent . One would at least  expect the fabric panels to be aligned properly, window covers to be totally sewn on , and all parts properly installed . If you read through this entire thread , you would realize what were all talking about. On a final note. The pictures Justafisherman posted were of an inspected tent. Id hate to see what Clam would of sent out, if it wasn't inspected. I started this thread for a positive reason of awareness. If Clam had a conscience they would send Justafisherman a properly made product. Its their fault they sent him a few that were of substandard quality.

That is the absolute truth. What would Jason Mitchell care, as long as the money keeps rolling in.

  This definitely wouldn't fly with me either.  I have a hard time believing that Clam wouldn't replace this, it's not acceptable.

They have already said it's acceptable to them.

Little surprised they didn't off at least a credit or like they did with the gear box recall, a gift kit with some swag.

Have to agree with quality control issue of Clam corp. After I sold my old scout . I went to purchase another Clam. The lack of resemblance to any kind of quality as compared to my old Clam was painfully obvious. So I bought from another maker.

Clam had built an excellent reputation over the past. Now it seems like they are hell bent on destroying it. I am sure the manufacturing contract to be built in China was financially rewarding to the company. But word eventually gets out and the downhill slide will begin. The fishing world can survive without Clam . But Clam cannot survive not having customers. Evidently this is not being taught at our halls of higher learning business schools. Yes bottom line is critical. When it is the primary concern of any company. That company is signing it's own death certificate.

If you doubt what I am stating. Read the business history of Winchester/US Repeating Arms. For a practical side pick up a Model 12 Winchester and compare to a Model 1200 Winchester. After 1964 the downward death spiral of this once proud company took awhile. Word took longer to get around back then. Later the company did try to restore their reputation and again started to make quality products. But the damage to its rep never recovered.

The lure of selling junk at quality prices does appeal to a bean counter short term. But once the buying public catches on. Companies with eternally stuffed warehouses fail.

What's funny is Clam has relaxed the quality so much, and south bend, HT, and celcius have improved some. I' actually put clam into a class with south bend, HT, and Celcius. A company where products can be decent or crap and you need to check stuff over from them before you buy it.
